Bildt is a part of an initiative that the legacy paper calls a global expansion of Opinions. The Post announced the new project in an article on its own web site Monday.
Anne Applebaum, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, will anchor the expansion. Among other columnists, the Post has recruited names such as Sebastian Malley, Judy Dempsey and Michael McFaul.
“At a time of unprecedented challenges in the international arena, and as a new U.S. president is chosen and charts a course in the world, The Post is strengthening its commitment to provide thought-provoking commentary across a broad ideological spectrum on war and peace, democracy and dictatorship, trade, migration and other global issues, beginning with Europe,’’ says Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor at The Washington Post, to his own newspaper.The Washington PostCarl Bildt
